Why do we need data center interconnect (DCI BOX)?

With the advent of cloud-based distributed data center deployments, the need for data transmission between data centers has become imperative. DCI serves as a critical component in transferring sensitive and crucial data traffic between data centers, enabling seamless connectivity and efficient data transmission.

Why choose WDM for DCI?

When it comes to Data Center Interconnect (DCI), utilizing Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) technology brings significant advantages. WDM enables the simultaneous transmission of multiple data streams over a single optical fiber by dividing the fiber into different wavelengths or channels. Here’s why WDM is an ideal choice for DCI:


Enhanced Bandwidth:

WDM offers high-capacity transmission, allowing for the efficient utilization of available fiber resources. With the ability to multiplex and transmit multiple data streams simultaneously, WDM significantly increases the bandwidth capacity for data center connectivity.


WDM is highly scalable, accommodating the growing demands of data center networks. As data traffic increases, WDM can easily expand by adding additional wavelengths, providing a future-proof solution that can adapt to evolving requirements.

Long-distance Reach:

WDM technology supports long-distance transmission, making it suitable for interconnecting data centers located in different geographical regions. It ensures reliable and efficient data transfer over extended distances, facilitating seamless communication between data centers.


WDM offers flexibility in network design and deployment. It enables the integration of various services and protocols, allowing for the smooth coexistence of different applications and facilitating the consolidation of multiple services onto a single network infrastructure.

By leveraging WDM for DCI, businesses can achieve high-speed, scalable, and reliable connectivity between data centers, empowering them to meet the ever-increasing demands of data transmission in a cost-effective manner.
